Unique sound for Squadcast push notifications

All the Squadcast push notifications have a unique sound on both iOS and Android applications to differentiate them from other push notifications.
This should ensure that you get alerted on incidents and it doesn’t get lost in the noise of other push notifications

Incident Notes
Each incident gets its own notes section. One can @mention users and invite them to collaborate and resolve the incident. When this is done, the mentioned user will receive an email and push notification to inform them of this.

Notification Rules

You can configure how you want to receive incident notifications. We support Call, SMS, Email, and Push notifications. You can also choose the order in which any of these notifications should come through.
You can add as many rules as you see fit.
Note If you Acknowledge / Reassign / Resolve an incident, the system understands that the pending notifications can be stopped. So, you will not receive any further notifications for the incident post this unless it has been reassigned to you again.
Custom Notifications for Android App
To customize the notifications for our Android App: 1. Navigate to Settings -> Apps & Notifications -> Squadcast 2. Under App Info, click Notifications 3. You can edit your preferred settings. There are mainly two notification channels: Incident and Normal 1. All the incident-related notifications will go to the incident channel. (Critical Notification Channel) 2. All other notifications (eg, on-call reminders) will go through the normal channel (System Default Channel)
All notifications coming from the incident channel are critical notifications. These will be used when overriding DND mode.


Team lists all users in the organization. Additionally, if the user is on call, there will be a small green dot against the user's avatar.
You can view any specific user’s profile by clicking on their avatar from the Team page. The user profile lists all the user info including the user’s Notification Rules, Schedules, Escalation Policies and Squads.


The Schedules page lists all the Schedules organized against date and time.
